In a hearing with the 15th Criminal Investigative Division held at Seoul Central District Court on Dec. 22nd at 4 PM, there was a trial in regards to the charges of Ms. A and her associates’ attempted extortion. At the trial on this day, the behind-closed-door interrogation of the suspects was conducted and the prosecution had proceeded with their final punishments.
On this day, the closed-door interrogation for Ms. A and two other persons was conducted for about 2 hours and 30 minutes. On this day, it’s said the justice department conducted the interrogation behind closed doors for the accuser Ms. A and the protection of the victim’s privacy.
Concluding the whole trial, the prosecution demanded 2 years in prison for Ms. A who made accusations against Park Yuchun. In addition for Mr. B, the male cohabiting with Ms. A, they said, “We are taking into consideration the cohabiting male became involved in this case upon hearing about Ms. A being sexually assaulted and sentence him to a year and half [in prison]”. Also for Mr. C, they stated the grounds for his punishment by saying, “It is hard to see him taking part because of chivalry without having any interests as a gangster committing the crime in the middle of a period of repeated offenses, and taking part in the crime without being paid anything”.
The defendants, through their final statements, conveyed their minds that they are wrongly charged to the justice department. Ms. A asked for clemency testifying in detail the account of the incident and regretting her actions in the past.
The trial to have Ms. A and group imprisoned presently is underway.
